Around forty 4-H members from Delaware, Clayton and Fayette counties recently had a chance to visit Des Moines and tour the State Capitol.
Thirty-nine kids and eleven adults headed to Des Moines as part of their 4-H Citizenship program earlier this month.
The Northeast Iowa 4-H Citizenship program is for middle school and high school students. The members participate in an 18-month program that teaches them about how to be a better citizen and to be of greater service for their community and county.
They visited the Iowa Hall of Pride, viewed a short inspiring movie on being “Iowa proud” and looked at many different museum exhibits that recognize the history and Iowans who have made outstanding contributions to their careers and fields of study. And they spent the afternoon touring the historic Iowa Capitol, visiting with their State Representatives and Senators and spending time in the Governor’s Office meeting Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg.
